    Everytime I get on the Internet my CPU Usage goes up to 100% and slows everything down tremendously, some to the point of freezing. What do I need to do to get rid of this problem?

    Howdy Chris Weinke...


    Go here Hyjackthis, and download and install Hyjackthis, open the program and click on Scan, once the scan completes, click on Save log, then open the log and copy, and paste the contents back here...

    If you do a ctrl-alt-del, which task is consuming that high cpu % ?

    And if you can, give us a copy/paste of a HijackThis Scanlog..

    Yup, you've sure been hijacked.

    Put checks in the following HijackThis Scanlog boxes, close all browser windows and click "fix checked".

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [winactive] C:\Program Files\Window Active\winactive.exe

    O19 - User stylesheet: C:\WINDOWS\Web\oslogo.bmp

    After rebooting, you should delete the "window active" folder in c:\program files.

    I would also recommend installing, UPDATING, and running Spybot or Adaware.

    http://tomcoyote.org/SPYBOT/

    Give us a new Scanlog when ready.

    That should do it then as far as the ad or spyware is concerned.

    Are you still seeing any high cpu usage?
